"The biggest thing we have to work on is knowing when to turn things on and really starting to fight. I don't think they know how hard they can play yet because they're so young, but we're definitely going to get there. We're starting out great so far and I hope we can continue to play well as we get into the tougher matches late in the season," said Arlington Head Coach Whitney Williams.

The pair of sophomore hitters, Arianna Bilby and Reese Talbot, absolutely dominated their matchups for the Eagles.

Bilby finished with a match-high 19 kills to go along with her four aces and five digs. Talbot was right behind her as she had 10 kills and five aces.

Arlington's sophomore setter Caroline Diemer made her presence felt as well as she had the match-high in assists with an incredible 34.

If you want to come out and support the Eagles, they will be facing off against the Edmonds-Woodway Warriors at home on Monday, Oct. 2, at 7 p.m.
